page, and of course, john mccain, lindsey graham, more hawkish republicans who say he did a disservice to the country by questioning the idea of using what they call necessary tactics. >> and rand paul said at the end of this week, he is seriously running for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. >> not a big surprise, he has hinted that in more ways than one to me and others, i'm sure to you, as well. it was pretty obvious as you saw him out on the campaign trail with his father who ran for president this past election cycle. but he was wanting to be the next paul to run. >> it is one thing to hint, one thing to say. he is a blunt guy, doesn't hold back. all right, dana, very good work this week. thank you very much. >>> and a dramatic turn this week, osama bin laden's son-in-law appearing in a federal court this week in new york, very close to where al-qaeda brought down the world trade center towers. sulaiman abu ghaith pled guilty to a plot to kill americans. he was captured abroad. and the decision to take him to new york versus the facility in guantanamo bay is raising
issues. the fact that he is saying that lindsey graham has suggested the same thing. paul ryan is sitting at home trying to figure out a way to balance the budget in ten years. >> i think it is a good thing in taking that revenue and putting it and not using it to combat the deficit. >> it soupd sounds like they ar saying let's use some of it for deficit reduction. >> that is tiny. >> i guess it is. to me, it seems like the line has been in the last month. it was the line before the revenues got passed. we can't talk about any tax some every time that is invoked in the context of nef virevenue, i only discuss it in the context of opening up the tax code of being litigated and legislated in which case nothing is going to done. >> if they can figure out a way around it, the bush tax cuts were a lowering taxes because they doubled them on january 1st. if there was a way to make them about combatting the deficit and saying this is a tax hike, i feel like they could be baited into a tax hike. if it is plausible to get more revenue it is going to have to be in the context of calling it somethin
lindsey graham and kelly ayotte say he should be tried as an enmachine combatant and interrogated to gain more intelligence on al qaeda. white house sources tell cbs news the president's national security team was unanimous in saying the prosecution of ghayth in federal court will best protect the national security interests of the united states. now, abu ghayth will face a number of terror charges. one of them could be murder. the maximum penalty there is the death sentence. ann marie. >> susan mcginnis, thank you. >>> john brennan has been confirmed by the senate to be the next director of the cia. yesterday's vote was 63-34. on wednesday kentucky senator rand paul delayed the vote by filibustering for nearly 13 hours. paul wanted an explanation from the administration about the possible use of drones to attack u.s. citizens on american soil. attorney general eric holder september a letter to paul saying the president has no authority to use a drone to kill an american not engaged in combat on american soil. >>> michigan senator carl levin says that he will n
and they're saying they were caught totally off guard. lindsey graham late yesterday on this move. >> we're putting the administration on notice. we think that sneaking this guy into the country clearly going around the intent of congress when it comes to enemy combatants will be challenged. bill: erick erickson, editor-in-chief redstate.com and fox news contributor here in new york. good morning to you. you busted out of georgia. >> good morning. bill: welcome back to new york here. this is usama bin laden's son-in-law. he is in custody in new york city. he will face a judge through some legal proceeding today. why not send him to gitmo? >> they should but this administration doesn't have a good policy on containment in gitmo. they want to shut it down. they know they can't. they can't blow them all up with drones so this will be a trial. what they tried to do with khalid sheikh mohammed, there was national outcry over that so they sneaked him into new york. it pains me to say nice things about lindsey graham after the tirade about rand paul yesterday but he is right. democrats and repu
is a stretch of imagination which is, frankly, ridiculous. >> brown: and south carolina senator lindsey graham accused his colleagues of using a double standard. >> i don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that president bush was going to kill anybody with a drone. you know, i don't even remember the harshest critics of president bush on the democratic side. they had a drone program back then. >> brown: at the white house, spokesman jay carney underscored the constitutional limitations on the president's power. >> the president swore an oath to uphold the constitution, and he is bound by the law. whether the lethal force in question is a drone strike or a gunshot, the law and the constitution apply in the same way. >> brown: and this afternoon, attorney general holder sent paul a new letter. in it, he said: senator paul declared himself satisfied with that answer. >> so, i am very pleased to have gotten this response back from the attorney general of the united states, and i think that americans should see this battle that we've had in the last 24 hours as something that's good
's stance weird and crazy. but what's surprising is that two g.o.p. senators lindsey graham and john mccain launched their own drone strike against paul. >> we have done, i think, a disservice to a lot of americans by making them believe that somehow they are in danger from their government. they are not. i don't think what happened yesterday is helpful to the american people. what we saw yesterday is going to give ammunition to those critics who say that the rules of the senate are being abused. i hope that my colleagues on this side of the aisle will take that into consideration. >> to take this debate into the absurd is what i object to. >> laura: now, don't get me wrong. they have the right to disagree with paul and the majority of g.o.p. senators who stood with him. but, given that the filibuster lasted 13 hours, why didn't either of them have the moxxy to debate their colleague face to face on the senate floor? what were they afraid of? presumably they could have done so either before or after their dinner with the president. were they jealous that a junior senator dominated the headl
. on the other side, senators john mccain and lindsey graham who asked him to step it back a bit. here's senator mccain thursday. take a listen. >> if mr. paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. he needs to know what he's talking about. >> let's introduce. maureen is a staff writer at salon.com. buzz feeds political editor and matt welch, editor in chief at reason magazine. and, matt, we'll start with you. it was a big week for your movement, so to speak. in fact, you couldn't contain yourself over at reason magazine. brian doherty said, "this was a very big deal. in 36 hours the republican party has completely changed." how so? >> that we're having this conversation to begin with. if you went to the 2004 national convention in new york city and listen to zell miller say it wasn't the journalist who brought us freedom of speech, it was the soldier. there was not a rand paul voice at that table at all. 2008, john mccain as the nominee. he's the most aggressively pro interventionist candid
cain, his southern bell lindsey graham oh my god! i made a pie. okay. i just decided he's aunt bee, i don't know why. he is part of a bipartisan group of senator -- >> there he is standing right behind him. he's -- >> he's always right behind john mccain. >> really? interesting? >> stephanie: got his back -- >> i would have thought it would have been the other way around. >> stephanie: stop it. >> what? >> stephanie: they introduced legislation intended to address mental illness. he said his concern about such a proposal stems from difficulty in determining what qualifies as a private sale. what is a private sale? if i buy a shotgun from mark whoever, or if i give one to a family member, i'm not going to put that in to the federal % system, that's just not practical. that probably happens all the time because he is so manly. >> mercy. >> stephanie: michigan still hates governor rick snyder. the newest michigan poll finding rick snyder's numbers not recovering. 37% of the voters approve of the job he is doing. 54% disapproval. [ booing ] >> stephanie: snyder trails every dem
are objecting are the two cranky old guys in the senate, lindsey graham and john mccain. [ laughter ] >> steve: all right. geraldo. >> clayton: we want our viewers to weigh in on that topic. plus this, much was made this week of senator rand paul, his big filibuster. he actually gave a speech. he want reading from a magazine or a phone book or anything. he gave a speech. he was citing all sorts of libertarian bloggers as it relates to these drone strikes in the united states' use of these drone strikes around the world and here at home. he wanted clarification on something very specific, which is does the american government have the right to launch a drone here in manhattan, new mexico, wherever, and target an american citizen who is a non-combatant and the white house responded. the attorney general eric holder said no. so the white house actually gave some movement on that. what did you make of this back and forth? >> well, first of all, i think that what senator rand paul did with that 13-hour filibuster was absolutely magnificent. i was so proud of him. he was channeling jimmy stewart fro
a lot from lindsey graham, but the three of you -- [laughter] i'm curious where you guys are on the various rules that are out there. >> well, from a standpoint i'm not a judiciary committee so i won't have a chance to make it to the process. i'll look at as we come through. we had to enforce the law on the books. you kind of take that general approach and start getting into areas like straw purchases, things like that that are argued they are, but may not be working well right now. i am like senator graham. i look forward to seeing that the judiciary committee comes up with. i hope would be bipartisan whatever it is. i party saddam opposed to senator feinstein assault weapons ban. nevertheless, we'll look at things as presented. right now from a standpoint because i'm on the committee, it's relatively early in the process because they have a process in the committee and your senators working hard to get some enter the committee. once that happens will look at it.

suck s successfully convicted. >> listen to senator lindsey graham. he himself is an attorney. he's very much opposed to the decision to send him to new york. he thought this was an enemy combatant who belonged in guantanamo bay before a military tribunal. listen to senator graham. >> to the administration, why did you not send this person to guantanamo bay to be held as an enemy combatant for intelligence-gathering purposes? i have been firm against torture but i do believe that guantanamo bay is a secure military facility that provides this country a great asset and we've received a lot of information from guantanamo bay detainees. >> as you remember, the uproar a few years ago when they were thinking of sending sheikh mohammed to be tried before a civil court in new york. that eventually was reversed. what do you think about the pros and cons legally speaking? >> well, it is true that there is a major difference between the two in terms of interrogation. in a criminal court where he is now, he will receive a lawyer who will undoubted he will say, stop talking to prosecutors. do
